Victory Cannon - "Boomer"

The tradition of firing the cannon began in 1970. Boomer is a scale replica of a civil war cannon which is maintained and operated by the Talons. The cannon is fired at special events on campus and at home football games when the Mean Green score a touchdown or field goal. It is also used at the start of each half.
